Diane Beaudoin passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 12th in Ottawa, Ontario at the age of 71. Born on November 12, 1950, in Espanola, ON, she is predeceased by her parents Doris (nee Doucette) and Rene Beaudoin. Diane was a very proud Mom to her daughter Kathy (Phil) and Grandma to Sam. Predeceased by her sister Lois (Greg) and brother, Richard. She will be fondly remembered by her brother Dennis and sisters, Pat, Yvonne, Carol (Angus), Sandra, and her many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Despite the many health challenges and limitations she experienced throughout her life, Diane was an incredibly resilient and positive person. She found joy in spending time with her family, playing Bingo and was a Yahtzee pro. She enjoyed watching movies, particularly the classics and had a surprising love for scary movies.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Garden Terrace nursing home where she lived for many years. Diane knew all the staff by name and had special bonds with many of them who treated her like family.
To honour her memory, go and do all things she was not physically able to do with the same positivity and kindness that she showed everyday.
Her family has chosen to mourn her passing in private.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Diane can be made to Crohn’s and Colitis Canada.
